Police are investigating after two people were found stabbed to death at a Barrow County home on Tuesday.

BARROW COUNTY, Ga. -- A man stabbed another man to death before family members of the victims fatally attacked him with a baseball bat in Barrow County on Tuesday, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said. 

According to the Barrow County Sheriff's Office, 31-year-old Whitney Stovall stabbed 47-year-old Stanley Hugh Ivy Jr. after an altercation at a home at 1168 Old Hog Mountain Road.

Family members, attempting to help Ivy, then attacked Stovall with a baseball bat. 

When deputies arrived at the scene, they said they encountered Stovall, who was then apparently holding the baseball bat and "belligerent and combative".

Deputies took Stovall into custody after a struggle. According to the GBI, Stovall then died at the scene. 

Due to the "complexity of the situation", the GBI was called in to assist in the investigation. 

The incident remains under investigation.
